I had time in my hand but did not know how to use it. <BR> <BR> I was running around with my new marriage life, no job and also all junky habits. But I made it this far (I mean to say without any thing serious). Now finally I am in my new job (almost 2 & 1/2 month ) but I am stressed out (due to lots of work). I am working over time every single day (first it was looking good - big pay checks - but not anymore) day off.... Wed, 4 Sep 2013 17:37:30 EST Welcome Back to myself I took myself a big time off...not with exercises though...I still try to manage get my exercises done time to time. Now I have more time since I am out of my job. Me and my husband were working at the same place but now my manager wants only one person to work there (just because it's not too busy). I let my husband take that chance because I have never ending work @ home <em>334</em> . <BR> <BR> So far everything is going great with me and hubby. I feel more happy then ever since we p...

This is one of the best gift I will be receiving on my 1st anniversary (week early) . Yes he is coming exactly a week early and I am very excited about it. I want to give him welcome surprise with some home decor & very special gift but I get very confuse here. I know what he wants but unfortunately I can not afford it at this time so I am going to have to go in budget. <BR> <BR> Now I am thinking that what should I give him ... Sun, 31 Mar 2013 23:00:41 EST Just want to come back to my normal life It's been 2 week and I stayed sick. I had fever for week and then cold and cough and much more. <BR> <BR> I was giving myself a little time on sparkpeople but not for myself. I just spent most of the time online and in front of tv.

And yes I did take it easy. Each and every workout program says that we have to give our body a rest. So I did take a day off today. Actually the real reason was that I had to go to work early and I woke up late so I did take a day off. <BR> <BR> But I still did 10 minute and I did track it to my fitness tracker. <BR> <BR> Well its new week so hope everyone enjoy your week..

I know it is still early to feel really great result. But having small results are ... Fri, 22 Feb 2013 11:55:42 EST Not a good day Today looked like everything is against me. I woke up tired and sore. I wanted to sleep some more but then I got call from my husband and we ended up talking for hour. It was more about my Mother in Law because she is little sick and also talked about immigration. I don't know what is with Indian embassy but they are not making any progress on anyone's case.

Tue, 12 Feb 2013 09:14:35 EST I missed sparking I come on Spark People to see my progress time to time and also read blogs and article around. I am not perfect so I do miss adding nutrition and water intake. But I never missed fitness tracker. <BR> <BR> But My net was down since 3 days.

Mon, 4 Feb 2013 22:05:40 EST What does work better - a word or a sign Today I was posting on message board and I answered one question (which I do it everyday). And the question is "Are you feeling positive or negative?" . My answer is "Positive " / "+" always. But today this question just made me wonder what does work better?? <BR> <BR> <BR> word "POSITIVE" OR sign "+" <BR> word "NEGATIVE" or sing " - " <BR> <BR> If it is stupid then let it be that way because we never know what does our mind think time to time. <BR> Sun, 3 Feb 2013 22:09:29 EST I am going to rewarding myself little early I just found out that my shoe is falling a part <em>30</em> so I will reward myself a running pair of shoe before I reach to my next goal. Should I change my reward to something else or just leave it the way it is? Thu, 31 Jan 2013 13:37:14 EST 01/29/2013..very easy day I had day off so I thought let me go ahead and clean out my room (all paperwork) and re arrange things around. But it always not happens what we wants. I called hubby and then found out my sister in law is coming online to meet me. I log in and - first my brother in law, then sister in law. I talked to them and then my husband & my mother in law came online. one after another . It took my 4 hrs of morning time. It was fun with talking to them. But still time did matter but what could I do. ... Tue, 29 Jan 2013 21:48:28 EST I need some exercise change..

I know its kind of old in technology but when we get something new then we get more excited. I also received 2 DV... Tue, 22 Jan 2013 18:33:25 EST Another day when I had to push myself I stayed up for quite late last night. I would say just could not sleep because did some exercise before going to bed. So I had restless morning. I was feeling very tired when I woke up. I had to make myself get up because had to drop my mom at work. I came home and had break fast and then did some sparking. Then finally I decided to do some exercise by thinking that might get some energy. I did exercise but no energy after doing exercise. <BR> <BR> So just spent a day or should say day wen... Mon, 21 Jan 2013 22:18:06 EST I still walked Today I took day off just to spend with family. We had community event so decided to take mom & dad there because they don't go out much. Community event was ok but I was happy that had chance to spend time with mom and dad. I did not do anything thru out the day except cleaning and checking out all the mail. I realized when I came home from event that I had not done my exercise. I am starting this week by having one day missing exercise and I did not wanted that. Finally I did 45 minute walk...

Thu, 17 Jan 2013 22:55:36 EST I was little over on my food tracker I was over to my food traker which is not good. But I am not going to take that seriously. I just need to make sure that I watch my food from tomorrow so it won't go over. <BR> <BR> So far busy day. I am tired but don't want to go to sleep. I guess it is because it's weekend. I sure have to work tomorrow afternoon though and I have also promissed my mom that I will cook tomorrow. I am making veggie enchilladas tomorrow for the first time. will see how it taste. Sat, 12 Jan 2013 23:00:27 EST I am learning to plan ahead of time This probably sound like stupid and I never thought about it till last week. I have left alone with my mom & dad. My brother moved out (2 yrs ago) and now my sister also moved out (a week ago). Now I have to take care of my mom & dad. They are doing very fine but health wise my mom does not. She is been having some problem. All her reports are coming normal but she is not ok. I could tell by just looking at her. <BR> <BR> She was sick for almost 6 month (from May to Nov/Dec 2012).

I have already stop going on facebook but I still need more time to cut down. It is just too hard to make time when you are taking care of your family & their problems. I need one more thing to let it go. Let's see how I do it Wed, 2 Jan 2013 21:21:17 EST 1st day of new year I have always heard in india that "whatever you do on the new year day, that's what you do in whole year - means if you wake up early then you wake up early whole year" . This is funny because whatever I do on the new year day that I hardly do thru out the year. I stick to do as much as I can (most of the time) <em>30</em> . Let's see what will I do entire year. <BR> <BR> Today I woke up late because stayed till late last night watching NY New Year live. I had fun watching NY live. I am...

When it was time for me to go to work then I decided to take walk to the post box. It usually takes 5 min for me to get there and 5 min back. I felt so good.

I have noticed that when I go for shopping I always make sure that I pick out the best food I can either it is fruits & veggies or something to snack on. Beside fruits and veggies I always make sure that I check nutrition box before I choose the food. <BR> <BR> Oh yes I make sure that I check what I eat.

I just did everyone else's work. Now I am so tired that I don't want to anything. I just want to go to sleep. I am just tired of adjusting myself with everyone. I should learn how to stick to myself. No one want to adjust them for me then I don't need to adjust myself for them Wed, 12 Dec 2012 21:19:00 EST Day is over & so does Audit Today was another day of Audit. It is done. I am more relaxed now. But I was stressed out in the afternoon. The officers were not looking papers properly and keep adding list that we don't have this papers and that papers. And I was ended up with showing each and every papers to them (around more then 200 papers). I was happy that they were keep marking things from the list.. we got this and by one. But I was stressed out at that time. <BR> Tue, 11 Dec 2012 21:59:37 EST One day is gone.. Today was really bad day..We had Audit in store (where I worked) from govt and it is still going on. It is like so much headache. They have all the papers but still they keep asking all the questions. I guess it is their way to figure it out if we are doing something wrong..Those guys came in 2 hrs late and did not finish everything in one day. They are coming back in the morning and they said they will finish everything and just wait for me to come there and then again questions. I wish they... Mon, 10 Dec 2012 20:01:26 EST How to SHUT UP?? I know it is kind of stupid question but I really need to know how to shut up / shut my mouth saying something. I have really bad problem that I can not see anything wrong and can't keep my mouth shut for saying anything about it. <BR> <BR> Now a days my problem is getting more and more problem.
